A Christmas Message From The Robots At GM: Video

Follow Viknesh

Like the rest of us, a few of General Motors’ 25,000 manufacturing robots are taking a break from their daily tasks, in this case welding, fastening and painting chores, to spread some holiday cheer.

They’re featured here in this Christmas video, helping Santa Claus and his elves by packing toys that are to be delivered to children all over the world tonight.

This year, we’ve heard that Santa will be ditching his sleigh and reindeer for something a bit more modern, a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster.

On a more serious note, GM has a long history of using robots in the manufacture of its cars. It was more than 50 years ago that the American auto giant first started using robots at one of its production facilities.

Its 1961 collaboration with engineer Joseph Engelberger resulted in the first industrial robot used in a GM production facility, and is generally regarded as a manufacturing milestone.
